Autumn Lovers

by Michael Auguste


As autumn paints
with many hues and chill,
as leaf piles waft their smoke
to nostrils scent,
the onset of fall
breathes once again
another year almost faded.

And often against this palette
of many colors
love is found.

Two young lovers
can be seen walking hand in hand,
their cheeks blushed
with life and inner warmth.

Their focus,
not on the landscape
as it catches the fire
of turning season,
but upon each other

While sunset's silken glow
bathes them in crimson radiance,
broken whispers can be heard.

Warm breaths of steam
melt into the falling day
as lips
touch,
taste,
know
and linger

falling of many kinds here  
Michael this is lovely...
we all seem to have autumn on our minds...
you created many images and moods with a few perfectly chosen verses.
very well done poet sir and nice to see your name back here

Precious rhythm you are my guide

Oh warrior show me thy light

I really like this poem.  Autumn is my favorite season; you've described colors and scents very well.  And the young love.  Wish that would happen for me!

Kudos,
ShannonM

YOU HAVE BEEN MISSED MY FRIEND...and how you make me yearn for Autumn breezes (it'll be awhile before we see any of THAT here) You write of love as one who KNOWS--and that is an Autumn breeze in itself. Hugs.

This was so very beautiful Michael.  We are witnessing the beginnings of Spring here in Melbourne, my beautiful freesias and daffodils are out and there are signs of new life everywhere.  Take care......Sue
